This time last year I had a lot of fun putting together a little video of Christmas in Seattle, so I decided to do it again this year from the other side of the world. Here are a few images of Christmas this year in Ireland.
After the celebrations have ended, all that remains is to try to beat the crowd to the post-Christmas sales. I saw these guys this morning getting a head start.
Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall.
And I’m just getting started.
If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.
Merry Christmas to you! 🙂
And the same to you, Nancy, hope you have a wonderful day! xxx Ailsa

Thanks Gunta, I had a nice, low-key day with a fantastic walk along coastal cliffs to burn off far too much Christmas dinner! Hope you had a great day too! xxx Ailsa
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays Ailsa dear.

Happy Christmas Ailsa ! Sounds just the ticket that bracing walk along the coastal cliffs .. I’ ll be doubling away up the Hills here this afternoon with a crowd of people and then hurrying back down for mulled wine and vittles 🙂
Enjoyed my hop over to Ireland with you and the racing sheep !
And a Happy New Year to you too, poppy, from me and the racing sheep! xxx Ailsa
Wonderful video, Ailsa! I enjoyed watching it very much. And the music from The Nutcracker is the perfect touch. Happy holidays!

Merry Christmas and thank you for this wonderful trip in Ireland over Christmas. The sheep were the perfecting ending – just like I always imagined. 😉
